As Tamim Iqbal is missing from the Zimbabwe series due to injury, responsibility will be on Liton Das’ shoulders to provide a good, attacking start for Bangladesh in the first few overs

Liton Kumar Das

Liton is in good touch as the right-handed opener scored a brilliant century against India in the Asia Cup final. The wicketkeeper-batsman continued his good form in the domestic circuit as well, having smashed a double century off just 140 balls in the National Cricket League match after the Asia Cup. As Tamim Iqbal is missing from the Zimbabwe series due to injury, responsibility will be on Liton’s shoulders to provide a good, attacking start for Bangladesh in the first few overs. Considering his good form, the Tigers camp can certainly hope for a good start from him.

Mustafizur Rahman

The left-arm pacer has been bowling well in the last few series. The paceman has bowled with good pace in the Asia Cup, and produced some economical spells to clinch victory on a few occasions. It seems like he is regaining his rhythm after a difficult year or so due to injury. The home series against Zimbabwe is another chance for him to get back his confidence. The home conditions will certainly favour Mustafizur as his main weapon will be the slower deliveries, along with his variation, on the Dhaka and Chittagong pitches.

Sikandar Raza

Zimbabwe are welcoming back Raza to their ODI set-up after his contract issues with the board were resolved recently. The all-rounder has proved himself to be very crucial in the Zimbabwe middle-order over the past few years, thanks to some brilliant innings. Raza was in blistering form last time they played in Bangladesh during the tri-nation series, and he also performed well with his off-spin. He will definitely be the key for Zimbabwe in the ODI series.

Hamilton Masakadza

Captain Masakadza is one of the most senior players in the Zimbabwe squad and the Zimbabwe camp will rely on their captain to lead from the front once again. Masakadza has played 201 ODIs for Zimbabwe, scoring more than 5,000 runs. The right-handed opener played in the Dhaka Premier League in the last few seasons. He also scored a century in the lone practice match against BCB XI Friday. The Zimbabwe captain needs to perform at the beginning of the innings yet again to put pressure on the host.
